check URL with basic auth

Hi all,

I need to check the availability of a web page that requires basic auth.
The best thing I could come up with so far looks like this:

if failed url http://user:address@hidden:80/doc/Main_Display.html
then alert

This would probably work, but in my case both the username and the
password are empty (yes, I know that's stupid, but I cannot change it).
However, when using

if failed url http://:@ then alert

monit complains about the syntax:

fe1 # monit -t
/etc/monit.d/host.conf:3: syntax error ':'

Please note that curl with --user set to ":" fetches this page just fine,
so I could go for an external script. However, it looks like this is merely
some kind of parsing issue. Is there a way to make the URL work inside
monit? My monit version is 5.12.2 (if that matters).
